A women's rights group projected a pro-choice message onto the front of the Supreme Court as the first day of nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings drew to a close Tuesday. 

The group, UltraViolet, projected an image of Trump's pick along with the message "Roe V. Wade is more popular than Brett Kavanaugh," referring to the landmark court ruling that legalized abortion nationwide.

The first day of Kavanaugh's hearing was repeatedly interrupted by protesters, resulting in 20 arrests.

Democrats also frequently interrupted the proceedings.

Democrats repeatedly asked if the hearing could be adjourned until they could review more documents relating to Kavanaugh, after lawyers for former President George W. Bush released 42,000 documents less than a day before the hearing.
